New in: Rockie by Alexander Wang

With Shopbop recently entering the Chinese market, I was invited by Shopbop China to have a go at using their platform. It was an unexpectedly smooth and fuss-free process, and I was generally very satisfied with the experience.

I have been thinking of getting a Rockie bag for a couple of months now, and it was an amazing coincidence that Shopbop has the model that I want, so when I was asked to pick a product, the choice was really quite effortless.

Tutorial: Jean Paul Gaultier 2015 Spring Runway Look

I was invited to write another article for Global Blue CN here. This is my first time doing a step-by-step picture tutorial, and I still can't believe how hard it is! Hats off to all the beauty bloggers who manage to churn out tutorial after tutorial, especially of the video variety - I can only imagine how time-consuming that is.

The original inspiration is this look, on the gorgeous Liu Wen:

The products used are in this picture below. Feel free to click through to the page to find out the shades I used! The names of the products are mostly in English, though the article itself is in Chinese.

Review: Lancôme Lip Lover

A few weeks back, I wrote a review for Lancôme China on their newly launched Lip Lover lipgloss. I was sent 14 shades in total, and I thought I'd share the swatches on this blog as well.

Concept Photo: My 5 Product Face

This look is created for my second article with Global Blue UK's Chinese Editorial page, where I wrote about the 5 products that I would use to create my daily look. I later decided to create a simple concept photo from writing this piece, to add a little meat to my admittedly very short article. You can find the page here, and like the first interview with them, this one is also in Chinese.

The products that I talked about are the Naked Basics eyeshadow palette, Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage concealer, Heroine Kiss Me waterproof mascara, Suqqu Face Protector SPF 50, and Burberry Lip Velvet in 307 Rose Pink.
